About Our Rescue Group:

Bully Rescue & Advocacy Group envisions a world where all pets are free from abuse, neglect and discrimination.

As an all volunteer rescue & advocacy group our mission is to rescue animals who have been abused, abandoned, or otherwise destined to be euthanized at the hands of humans who have failed them. We are an all-breed rescue with a soft spot in our hearts for the misunderstood bully breed dogs. Our goal is to help educate others and erase negative stigma associated with "Pit Bull" dogs. By working with responsible foster homes, we are able to provide our dogs with a loving environment which includes being kept indoors as a family pet, socialized, trained on the basics including manners & crate training. Through donations, all animals rescued by BRAG shall be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and implanted with microchip before being adopted into a well matched and carefully screened adoptive home. We also works with responsible owners who need assistance with food, routine care & training.

We believe in the No Kill Equation.
We believe dogs are individuals and should not be labeled.
We believe that all dogs deserve a second, third or more chance at living the best life they can possibly live.
We believe there is no such thing as a bad dog, only bad owners.
We believe that all animals need to be in an environment to fit their specific needs & personality.
We believe that dogs are intended to be family pets and place them accordingly.
We believe that when people are considering pet ownership, they should consider adoption from a rescue or shelter rather than for profit breeders or puppy mills.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
